The recall encompasses all varieties of Iams ProActive Health canned Cat and Kitten Food (3 oz & 5.5 oz cans) bearing expiration dates of 09/2011 to 06/2012 on the bottom of the can. The recalled cat food was distributed throughout North America.

    For all the pet owners out there, take these pet food recalls very seriously. In December 2006, I fed my three cats Xmas treats that were recalled in March and April 2007. All three of my cats were diagnosed with kidney failure in January 2007.
    If there had been a timely recall giving me
    notice of a problem with this pet food, their lives could have been saved.

    So if you have recalled pet food, don't feed it to your pets. The safety of many commercial pet foods has improved little since 2007. Be cautious.
